Alliance Missionary Obot Ite

Support Account ID: ALA003

Rev. Obot Ite is a church planter in Jamaica and is the longest-serving Alliance Missionary on the LCMS mission field. He grew up with a missionary pastor, later received his theological education, and became a pastor in the Lutheran Church of Nigeria (LCN). Since Jamaica has a substantial population with African heritage, partnering with the Lutheran Church of Nigeria (LCN) to call Rev. Ite to Jamaica in October 2007 as an Alliance Missionary pastor was logical and has borne much fruit.

Pastor Obot serves as the Pastor of Faith Lutheran Church, a mission in downtown Kingston and also St. Andrews congregation. He conducts worship services, leads Bible classes and works especially hard to shore up the men in their roles as husbands and fathers. In addition, he regularly makes visits and conducts services at two preaching stations. His emphasis on empowering lay leaders, expanding outreach to adults and children, and establishing the church’s mercy arm has brought in new members and grounded them in God’s Word. We pray that the Lord will provide a much- needed missionary pastor to work alongside Rev. Ite.

Pastor Ite and his Jamaican wife, Melissa, are parents to two school-age daughters, Goodness and Aamira, and baby Anaiyah, born in February 2023.
